T-REX 450
Airwolf body

I want to make a Airwolf out of Trex450SE V1 and have a few questions.

Who makes a good Bell 222 scale body or the Airwolf one with all the fix’ns?

What does it typically cost to do something like this?

Does these bodies fly well or will I have other problems later on with flight performance…Not 3D, but weight and pitchyness issues.

I don't know about the airwolf body but I have a Hughes 500E and a Jet ranger, both are Darthdrk bodies. They fly just like the pod and boom, it just takes a minute to get the battery hooked up...

Tom..... No "D" flying....

Fusuno makes the detailed 450 fuselage (the RVS version with retracts)

Great timing on this post! I just rec'd the fairly flashing looking FUSUNO Airwolf fuse for the 450. I just about dropped my jaw when I looked inside that box. This thing is enormous! They advertise it at 180grams and they are FOS by a factor of almost two (if you get the one with the retracts.) Mine with retracts but nothing else is showing 334 grams!

Apparently this isn't too much weight at all, though 3D flight is understood to be out.

I'm scrambling now to figure out what kind of motor I'll need to make this thing handle mild sport flight. I'm looking at recommendations based on people doing AP work. To me that seems like a fair comparison. Some useful notes were found under this 450 AP mount:

I'm pondering a 4S setup as I fear that extra weight would really hurt my climb-outs and would lead to a crash. I may just build it stock and see what it can do... I get spending however so I may snag something used and fiddle with that. Not knowing the right head speed and blade length is a problem. I'm thinking to shoot for HS of 2200 to 2500 maybe with a 325mm blade for starters. I also get the sense that heavier paddles might be of use. A metal head upgrade may also be in order to handle the extra load/stress. I have a stock 450 XL (CCPM configuration if they aren't all that way.)

Any question on my new fuse' let me know. Any information on setting it up and I'm all ears!! I'm pretty pleased with the appearance of this thing, though ever so slightly different than the pics I saw.

Thanks,
RockinRyan
